Trying out the "demo" pod

We received our demo omnipod yesterday. This is a tube-less insulin pump. Of course this one doesn't have insulin.. we are just trying it out to see how wearing it feels. We are planning on talking to our endo. next week about pumps and continous glucose monitors. The pod is still "sticking" today. The new smaller pods are supposed to be out soon... :)

Another insulin change..

Isaac has been having several low bg's. The Endo. changed his insulin again. Thank God he hasn't had any lows in 2 days.. He was having them everyday. He is not taking much insulin right now. When we left the hospital he was 1-15 for all meals and 12.5 lantus.. (His lantus had went down to 1 in the past-up to 5 now back down to 3). Novolog is only if he is above 200 at breakfast and lunch (sliding scale which isn't much either) and 1/2 u per 45gc at supper. I have taken things like the weather/food/exercise etc. into consideration on the breakfast/lunch deal  and changed accordingly. He was only getting apx. half a unit at breakfast-.5-1 u for lunch with previous ratios anyway. Fri. he went low by lunch without having any insulin @ breakfast.... I guess this is what the "honeymoon" phase is all about. Our upcoming Endo. appt. is next week. Looking forward to seeing what is A1C is. At diagnosis on Dec. 27, 2010 his A1C was. 13.2. On Jan. 3, still in hospital it was 12.5 He was in the hospital for nine days. Dec.27- Jan. 4.   Feb. 3, with 1 month of treatment his A1C was 9.3(of course that had 2 months of pre diagnosis highs in there.) The Endo. is wanting it below 8 @ next appt. I hope it is much less than that.. We are still on MDI. When the time comes, he is wanting the omnipod..(of course because it is tube-less and if we get a pump.. I def. want a CGM.!) Our Endo. is over 2 hours away.. I wish the local hospital could find a new ped. endo for our area... Anyway.. I am so thankful for insulin and newer advances in care for pwd.
God is good-All the time.

Finding morel mushrooms, ramps, and creek fishing :)

 Isaac and I went turkey scouting this morning. We also were hunting for morel mushrooms. We still need to find a few more mushrooms before we fry them up. Along the way he decided he would like a few ramps to eat. A very nice morning walk.

 We have been going creek fishing a few days this week. The water is alittle high but they still caught a few and released them.

Abram with a small rainbow trout. We had a  nice evening. Our cold crops are doing well. I will post some pictures of the garden soon. Lord willing :) Thank you Lord for all of your many blessings.

Spring bouquet

This is a bouquet that two of my boys and one of my niece's picked for me today.. :) I am very blessed.

1. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? To just be a better person all around.

2. Write about a time when you got lost... I can't remember ever being lost.

3. Camping or 5 star hotel? Camping

4. Have you donated blood? Several times.

5. Do you have a budget or do you 'fly by' most months? Well..we get the bills paid and have a little left over.. :) Thank you Lord.
